... Elevated fire danger through Saturday...

Fire danger has increased in areas such as the Haines Highway,
taiya River Valley, Hyder, and other areas away from the water
channels Friday afternoon. Relative humidity values have plummeted
into the 20 to mid 30 percent range. Winds remain at 10 mph or
less but fire fuels remain very dry across the Inner Channels.
Similar but slightly better conditions are expected for Saturday
afternoon as offshore flow weakens and turns more onshore by
Saturday evening. Relative humidity values are still expected to
drop into the upper 20 to mid 30 percent range but winds should
remain relatively light in the dry areas. Fire danger subsides
Sunday and Monday due to increased onshore flow and more cloud
cover for shading causing higher relative humidity.

People should continue to exercise extra caution with any
open air fires through this Holiday weekend.
